SIA Group: “The Group’s operating environment continues to be impacted by the uncertain global economic climate and high fuel prices. Forward passenger bookings for the next few months are expected to be higher against the same period last year and in line with the planned increase in passenger capacity. However, yields are expected to be weaker as a result of the intense competitive environment. On the cargo front, demand is expected to remain depressed, in turn placing pressure on loads and yields.” Source: Company statement, 25-Jul-2013.
